 Footpaths & Walks around Kirkby Malzeard 

A walk around Kirkby Malzeard village - 2 and a half miles.

From the Main Street walk down the Ripon road for a few hundred yards until you come to the gate into Love Lane (just before the dairy on the left). Go up the lane and through the churchyard, past the grave of George Wharton who died aged 111, and to St. Andrew's Church. Then up Church Street, past the Market Cross and follow Main Street to the Mechanics Institute and then the Pinfold, which is past the Garage. Turn left off Main Street towards the Green and first right to find the Highside Playing Fields.

Continue up the Back Lane, turning left at the Main Road and then take the first right, signposted Dallowgill. Keep walking for about 800 yards until you find a gate marked Lamberts Quarry. Follow this path right over the hill and join the Ringbeck Road. Turn right on this road and you'll soon be back in Kirkby.

A walk around Newlands and Moorland, about 3 and a half miles.

A description of this walk can be found in the book "Easy Walks Around Kirkby Malzeard" which is available in Kirkby Stores, price 50p.

This walk starts 3 miles from the centre of Kirkby Malzeard.


The many footpaths and lanes in the countryside surrounding Kirkby Malzeard allow the walker access to both enclosed farmland and open moorland.  Lots of footpaths lead directly from the centre of the village to beautiful countryside, and many other tracks and paths cross Dallowgill, Kirkby Malzeard and Grewelthorpe Moors.

The booklet 'Easy Walks Around Kirkby Malzeard' by Gwynneth Jackson, costs 50p and is available from Kirkby Stores.  Most of the walks in the booklet start on foot in the village, although three of them start on the edge of the moor.
